Cute overload

After two critically and commercially successful outings based on the Final Fantasy series, Square Enix's Theatrhythm franchise is being expanded to include Dragon Quest — the company's other million-selling RPG brand.

A new trailer has just been released in Japan which shows off footage from Theatrhythm Dragon Quest — due out early next year in that region — as well as the tunes which will be contained within.

Of note are the battle scenes, which — unlike Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call — don't use a side-on perspective, but instead opt for a first-person viewpoint, just like the mainline Dragon Quest titles themselves.

There's no word on a western release as yet, but our fingers are eternally crossed.

Thanks to Aqueous for the tip!
